December 23, 2018 – Thoughts by Rev Kev

It is one of Western Civilizations best known stories. For two thousand years it has been told and retold, preached and sung about. It has been represented in art and by the purveyors of mass-produced lawn figures. We celebrate it every year with Christ-mas trees and lights with gifts cards, food and cookies, carols and hymns. You know the locale —a manger in Bethlehem. You know the cast of characters —Mary, Joseph, the angels, shepherds, the wise men and now each of us! You remember hearing the plot details—the census the long journey, the overcrowded people visiting with no room in the inn!
There is much more to the Christmas story than meets the eye. There are details we may have missed entirely. We pray that our liturgy and songs invite you to renew your faith and celebrate with great honor and glory this gift from GOD! Please take the time you have with family and friends to be grateful for that and that God continues to bless you and your families! Take time to enjoy the food that has been prepared, the cookies that have been baked, the cards that have been written, with love, and all of the decorations which brighten our lives!
To you and your family on behalf of the Pastoral Team and Parish Staff we pray that Christmas will be a Blessed, Joy filled Holy Day with family, friends and especially our prayers!
